In this unique collaboration between CERN and renowned paper engineer Anton Radevsky, 7000 tonnes of metal, glass, plastic, cables and computer chips leap from the page in miniature pop-up, to tell the story of CERN's quest to understand the birth of the universe. Protons, travelling at nearly the speed of light, collide within the heart of the ATLAS detector, sending out showers of debris to recreate 40 million times a second the conditions that existed millionths of a second after the Big Bang, the event that set our universe in motion. Now all ages can join the ATLAS experiment on this fascinating journey to the beginnings of the universe in this astonishing pop-up book.
